Today, i got this idea.
Kick out Linux and welcome FreeBSD!!!

But yeah …. no. I just wanted to make a little place to FreeBSD in my life, and see if we fit together. BUT!!! Because there’s always a But in Shakespare in Love (not sure about how to spell that name -_-‘). I wanted to try first on VBox, but bzzzzzzzzzz. DHCP won’t work!! Bugger…

Little trick: Use PCnet-PCI II instead of PCnet-PCI III (FastEthernet for that one .. forget about it) for the network adapter.

That’s it! Easy, ain’t it?
Let’s take a look about that Demon!

Who knows, I may add a category FreeBSD later on 😛 Stay Wired!
